    Another good bike been f**ked up. I have no problem with people wanting to modify their bikes, but once you cut all the mounting tabs off the frame you cannot go back to an original bike again.
    Don't even want to know how it got past a rego inspection.

    It wouldn't have, most likely was original when club rego'd then he did all the mods after. Its basically what everyone advises people to do. So when you flog it or what not, its the next person in lines trouble.

    The first big thing that sticks out - no front fender, second one is depending on rwc guy - no rear fender, and third again depends on rwc guy is the rear subframe is modified with a tail loop.

    Some people let **** slide easier, some things can be allowed to be passed if they know you will repair it and its only minor.

    Dont get me wrong i know what your saying.
    I have 2 old hondas, a 71 CB500 and a 78 CB550. The CB500 is beyond restoration to original, you could do it but hte cost would be phenomenal. The CB550 is a very good base for a original like resto.
    So my CB500 is modified upto the wazooo (including frame tabs removed but still no tail hoop, the tabs could be remade and welded back on or even cleaned up and rewelded), and the CB550 is original.
